This fabric wasn’t meant to be leggings when I picked it out. I had a really fun maxi dress in mind, maybe something with a cute wrap top and some fluttery sleeves. The tie dye print is so large and fun, I thought a maxi dress was really going to be the best way to showcase it! But when I received it, I couldn’t ever seem to commit to a pattern when I looked at it. I loved the idea of making some tie dye leggings, but I kept having this silly idea that the fabric was too pretty and too soft to be something as simple and usable as that! I held on to it longer than I planned, and finally January rolled around… And with it came the Activewear themed Sew My Style month, as well as the #SewFancyPants challenge. I took this lovely combination as a sign that this fabric was, in fact, meant to be a pair of fancy pants leggings, and finally went about cutting into it!
I will be honest, I’m not sure what I’m more in love with – this lush, squishy, perfectly charcoal grey waffle knit, or the Tabor V-Neck pattern. One thing is for sure, since I whipped this thing up, I haven’t wanted to wear anything else.
An awesome year of Sew My Style comes to an end today, can you believe it? I had such a great time as a leader for the project this year, and I truly enjoyed sewing up a few things out of my normal wheelhouse. I’ve been looking forward to the December pattern since we announced the schedule a year ago! The Axel skirt by Megan Nielsen has so many views to choose between, but version three was always my top pick! I came across this beautiful fabric from Style Maker Fabrics back in August, and scooped it up right away for this project.
